carthyism and this weird unconnectedness attacking chuck hagel, for example, because no one will give us info or anyone info about the benghazi situation even though hagel wasn't even in the government when benghazi happened. sick stuff. and it seems to be growing in inverse proportion to obama's popularity. the better he looks the worse these characters inhofe, cruz, mccain and lindsey graham are determined to look. did you notice the smile on john boehner's face sitting up there behind the president during the state of the union? if you did, you're imagining things. so afraid of the hard hating right of republicans these days of every stripe even boehner's scared to death of looking like he might like something barack obama had so say. to do that is to risk political death in these days. let's go at it. our guests are joy reid of the grio and michael steele, former chafer of the republican national committee. both are msnbc analysts and good ones. let's take a look at this. is this delay on the hagel vote about playing for time hoping new information comes out about them? "the new york times" reports
hagel's prospects for running the pentagon are going to hang in limbo for another two weeks as senate republicans get exactly what they want, more time. folks, delay is rarely a good thing when it comes to these fights. also this morning, a deep dive into iran's upcoming election as ahmadinejad heads out of office, the world wants to see which way his successor will take the combative country. >>> and a monumental moment lambs on capitol hill, with the retirement of new jersey senator frank lautenberg, there will be no more world war ii veterans in the u.s. senate. what's that mean for our politics and our national perspective? >>> good morning from washington. it's friday, february 15th, it's t"the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. president obama is standing by his embattled nominee for secretary of defense, chuck hagel, as hagel's former senate republican colleagues put up a major roadblock yesterday in their attempts to not just delay the nomination, but try to kill it. >> the yeas are 58, the nays are 40. one senator announced present. >> and with that senate vote, chuck hagel came
>> the war against chuck hagel, let's play "hardball." >> good evening, let me start tonight with this, at least for now, defense secretary. republicans have thrown out so many different reasons. it's hard to keep them all straight. it's because hagel hasn't accounted for every single penny he's made and it's because of what he had to say about israel and iran. but it's also because of the white house's response to benghazi, something that has nothing do with chuck hagel, who wasn't even in the government at the time. today, the unprecedented step came to a head. that failed to get the 60 votes needed. that mob at the gate headed over >> what are republicans really trying to do? nbc's kelly o'donnell is at the capital tonight. let me just tell you this, i'm going to ask you, why are they doing this? why are they holding up a cabinet appointment? >> for some of them, it is about chuck hagel wanting to know more, who were not a part of committee. they just all received. they make it very clear. it's not personal, they say. it is a tool within the rules of the senate. they say t
a great night. >>> today republicans blocked a vote on chuck hagel just because they can. >> well, it's valentine's day. love is not in the air. >> it's shocking. >> not a lot of love for chuck hagel. >> to filibuster of the senator's confirmation is unprecedented. >> unprecedented filibuster. >> the debate on chuck hagel is is not over. >> all roads lead to benghazi. >> i'm going to fight zblooes willing to fight to the very end. >> i'm going to hit you and keep hitting you. absolutely. >> who blinks first? >> nobody is quite certain. >> the filibuster of senator hagel's confirmation is unpress dented. >> not a filibuster. >> filibustered one of the president's nominees. >> who's going to filibuster? >> is that what they want? >> not a filibuster. >> the signal we're sending to the world is america can't get its act together. >> the sequester is there because the president insisted it be there. >> the president's sequester. >> republican dna is all over it. >> the sequester was the president's idea. >> the blame game just doesn't work. >> senate colleagues do nothing. democrats must
the nomination of chuck hagel as they threaten to do. they did it successfully etted yesterday for the time being. but first, this is the full court press. >> om this friday, other headlines making news, president obama did what any good man would do for valentine's day. took his wife out to dinner. >> i thought you didn't celebrate valentine's day. >> not any good man except myself. i had franks and beans on the couch in front of the t.v. f it was perfect. i love it. a little mustard. >> come on. get with your thing here? >> what? he asked. >> bill: i don't want to hear about franks and beans i want to hear about obama and where did they go for dinner? >> i am about to tell you if you stop interrupting me. this is my two minutes. >> bill: oh oh. this show. >> we want to critically acclaimed jose andre's mini bar. it only takes six people per seating, not too far from the white house. no word on what they ate yet, but 20-course meals there. >> mini. >> they are mini plates. 20 of them. >> it might be the most exclusive restaurant in washington, d.c. >
>>> let me finish tonight with the stalking of senator hagel. those who don't want this man as pentagon chief will stop at nothing. they're out there beating the bushes right now for anything that will slow the process of his confirmation, anything that will give them more time to find something they can build enough on to bring the man down. question. who are they trying to bring down? is it president obama's pick for secretary of defense? or is it the man the american people have chosen? is it about a confirmation or a desperate push to undermine the president's second term? listen to those attacking senator hagel, and you hear the yelps of pain this motley crew of neocons and right-wingers from the sun belt feel even though from the american people's choice of last november. what they hate, despise really, is the fact now in the history books that the american people in great numbers reject their war-like jingoistic notions of what america stands for. their problem is not with obama's choice for a cabinet appointment. their problem is with america's choice of who it wants
, and remember, the spin stops here, we're definitely looking out. this is a fox news alert. chuck hagel has been stopped by the republicans and we have that upcoming report tonight. and first the passengers on board the disabled carnival triumph cruise ship are making approach and could make landfall this hour. the cruise ship went dark on sunday after a fire broke out in the engine room leaving 4,000 passengers on board stranded and without any power. now, the conditions on the ship have been haroing to say the least with the passengers reporting toilets are overflowing and food is scarce and sewage is everywhere. and joining us jonathan serrie, jonathan. >> reporter: sean, the excitement is building among the family and friends gathered here waiting for this ship to come in. latest estimates coming in between 9:30 and half past midnight central time. a lot of wild cards because this is a ship that's running on limited power. we understand that the winchs aren't working and the docking is going to take time and disemba disembarkation. one functioning elevator and most the passengers are going
to filibuster hagel, they're sure as hell not going to let the minimum wage go to $9 an hour. they're against workers. they've always been against workers. you can do the math. you can play with the years and the trends and everything else. worker productivity in this country is absolutely awesome. but you know what? we just have a hard time paying people. get your cell phones out. want to know what you think. tonight's question. what is more important to the republican party? text a for corporate profits. text b for people. here's the number. 67622. you can always go to our blog at ed.msnbc.com and leave a comment. we encourage you to do that. we'll bring you the results later on in the program. now, joining me tonight for the first news interview. james carville, democratic strategy exist political consultant and author of the book "it's the middle class, stupid." you know what? the word "stupid" works for you because you back in the early '90s, you were saying it's the economy, stupid. >> right. >> james-g to have you on the program. glad to have you with us tonight. >> good to be here and
. >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly. it was very anti his own party and people. people don't forget that. you can disagree, but if you're disagreeab disagreeable, then people don't forget that. >> mccain blocks hagel for defense secretary because he said fwbad things about preside bush, because he stopped hanging out with his own party, because he stopped hanging out with the cool kids? what is this? high school? i'm sorry mr. mccain's feelings got hurt, but it's to reason to block a vote on national security, especially when he promised not to. >> we've never filibustered a presidential candidate and i don't think we should start here. >> that was sunday. but just four days later, mccain said no to holding a note on hagel. he broke his promise, he filibustered. john mccain obviously still had some sour grapes with chuck hagel, but he's really trying to get back at the man who beat him in 2008. this is all about trying to settle scores with president obama. joining me now is former pennsylvania governor
senator chuck hagel as our next secretary of defense. and brennaman as the head of the c.i.a. in a new t.v. add for the n.r.a., a gun owner is a proclaimed proud defender of the second amendment. >> after the nra's disgusting response, i've had enough. you take money from the n.r.a. and then continue to do their bidding, we're going to remember that come election time. >> move on is running a separate add targeting senator rob portman of ohio. the senator said he could get behind some gun safety legislative proposals but hasn't made a public commitment to any of them yet. we're back. stay with us. billy zane stars in barabbas. coming in march to reelz. to find reelz in your area, go to reelz.com [ male announcer ] start with a groundbreaking car. good. then invent an entirely new way to buy one. no. no. no. yes! a website that works like a wedding registry. but for a car. first, you customize it. then let people sponsor the car's parts as gifts. dad sponsors the engine for your birthday. grandma sponsors the rims for graduation. the car gets funded. then y
that with chuck hagel. 84% of americans for conservative action, voting record in his canner radio, voting for the bush tax cuts, voted for the war in iraq, voted against no child left behind but was a small government conservative, and republicans right now, particularly tea party, are not looking for converts like the democrats were with joe leiberman. they're looking for heretics. and they see in chuck hagel who never endorsed barack obama, was friendly with him, traveled with him, but didn't endorse him. they see this terrible heretic. and it's really, that is where the republicans are right now. they are looking for heretics instead of converts. and i think it's apparent in the tea party. but i think it's apparent in the ranks of the entire ranks of the party. >> you have effectively turned the corner to the next thing i wanted to ask you about, and this is the hagel confirmation. the republicans, i gather, we're told t is unprecedented, blocking the nomination or the confirmation so far of the man president obama wants to be his defense secretary. >> it's not quite unprecedented for
so. >> bret: is this standoff over hagel increase the chances that more information comes out? or does this get as the president says, blown away by charges that this is politically motivated? and republicans are just looking for things to grab on to? >> i don't think the hague hague standoff makes any difference. >> bret: a lot of it is based on the benghazi -- >> i understand. but i'm saying the standoff over hagel is more related to request for information about hagel. and speeches that he may have made in the past. it seems it's pro forma. republicans let him go after a certain period. the brennan appointment may be more closely associated. listen to cross examine of rice's summary of, this i'm not sure what we get out of this. i guess they do have a theory that explains all the changing stories and she said it on the air. they were confused. confusion at the time. confusion three days after it happened. >> confusion came after the fact. it came after the fact. the fact they can't reconcile that tells they weren't telling the truth. >> the most transparent administration w
stuff up. mcfarland warns time not on chuck hagel's side. good to see you, explain. >> he has two weeks where he's going to twist in the wind and his opponents will find out every dumb thing he's ever said. every speech he's ever made. they'll find out how many overdo library books he had. they'll try to paint the picture of a unqualified man to be secretary of defense. >> i think when there's something like this and it drags on, whether it ultimately passes, and john mccain was here saying he thinks we would be approved. he wouldn't vote for him but he would be approved. the upshot being that what happens is most nominees withdraw. they say it's not worth it and to save further embarssment they go quietly into the night, would he? >> one of two things, either he'll withdraw -- maybe the white house says this is also a distraction from the president's mission. we think it's a good idea if you withdraw. if he does, there are two candidates behind him. number two at the defense department, ash carter and michelle flowknow. both very well respected. say he does get confirmed. he's a weak s
